What is Autism in West Greenwich?

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact. Autism is a bio-neurological developmental disability that generally appears before the age of 3. Autism impacts the nervous system. The normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Individuals with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, socially, and leisure or play activities. Autism is diagnosed four times more often in boys than girls. Its prevalence is not affected by race, region, or socio-economic status. Since autism was first diagnosed in the U.S. the incidence has climbed to an alarming one in 54 children in the U.S.

The range and severity of symptoms can vary widely

People may experience:

  • Behavioral: inappropriate social interaction, poor eye contact, compulsive behavior, impulsivity, repetitive movements, self-harm, or persistent repetition of words or actions.
  • Developmental: learning disability or speech delay in a child.
  • Cognitive: intense interest in a limited number of things or problems paying attention.
  • Psychological: unaware of others' emotions or depression.
  • Also common: anxiety, change in voice, sensitivity to sound, or tic.

Science backs neurofeedback for ASD

Early studies have provided research support for neurofeedback as a treatment of the symptoms of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) including Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD). As of 2011, nine studies have been completed, showing significant improvements in social, emotional, and behavioral functioning with neurofeedback. Seven studies showed brain change after neurofeedback. Follow-up studies at 12 and 18 months after the neurofeedback training ended have shown that the gains from neurofeedback last after training ends.

Here in West Greenwich at the Chiropractic Neurology Center, we believe that the early evidence suggests that neurofeedback should be considered an evidence-based treatment option. Medications just treat the symptoms and do not affect the source of the problem in the brain. At the Chiropractic Neurology Center, our approach is different. We measure brain function with our cutting-edge technology performing a quantitative EEG brain map so that you can see the specific patterns for your difficulties.
